Swivel on this: Spinning Surface Hub 2X module may not be happening after all


Accidental Partridge?

Cor, my big bastard Surface Hub?

Pebble Time Steel ready in May. Plus: Now you can strap on sensors, GPS ... Geiger counter


Re: I like the company...

I agree, the sharp corners of the display sit badly within the rounded corners of black glass bezel. Would it have been such bad design to have given the black glass square corners or instead sourcing a screen that was just a fraction larger?

On the other hand, I was tempted to b̶u̶y̶ pledge and quite liked the idea of creating a custom face based on the 1970s red LED digital watches (Pulsar style), with a bit extra functionality, of course.

Review: Renault Zoe electric car


I like the car...

But that white interior's going to look like shit when my toddler's have been in it for 10 minutes.

A more practical black/grey option...?

Silly conspiracy theories! The only logical explanation is that the Russians are still using their stocks of Windows ME...

iPhone 'Death Grip' effect is real, plastic cases don't help

Thumb Up

The iPhone 4 bumper works

Simple as.

The signal loss sans bumper was very annoying - maybe my big sweaty palms... Now with bumper, no noticeable signal loss. Simple, empirical evidence.

Daily Mail promotes 'the new Betamax'


Remember Mark Thomas's 'People's Manifesto' pledge:

The Daily Mail should be forced to print on the front of every edition the words: "This is a fictionalised account of the news and any resemblance to the truth is entirely coincidental."

DAB my arse!

iPhone 4 developers get software update, but will it fix death grip?

Whoever created that animation has some serious issues. Either that or they're about 5 years old.

World Cup stats fever - have you got the balls to win?

"Analysis: No host nation has ever lost the opening game of the World Cup."

Maybe I'm wrong, but didn't the host playing the opening game only start in 2006 with Germany?

Not really the best stat' el' Reg...

HTC Desire


I really want one, but it's utterly useless...

(at least to me) until Android supports WIFI connections through a proxy server. The best hope for this at the moment is an app that sets-up a tethered WIFI connection to the phone via a LAN connected laptop = messey! Hacking proxy settings into the web browser is less than ideal too, as I obviously want my connected apps online!

Many businesses and educational establishments use a non-transparent proxy for all connectivity. Until the Android dev's support this, then many 1000's of establishments can't use this device.

If this is also a show-stopper for you, please add your weight to this thread on GoogleCode:

Ribbon in Office 2003?

Open to being proved wrong here, but I didn't think the ribbon appeared until Office 2007???
